Authors Dave and Jennifer Marx, who are also authors of the best-selling, award-winning PassPorter’s Walt Disney World, originally intended to produce a short supplement for Disney World-bound readers going on a Disney cruise. As they got deeper into the project the manuscript grew and grew?so many useful tips and details were discovered, and readers continued to ask questions they wanted answered in the book. The 14th edition of the guidebook offers an unprecedented level of detail in a travel guidebook, including in-depth coverage of the line’s newest cruise ships, the Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy, and the recently-updated Disney Magic and Disney Wonder, Disney’s presence in Europe and Alaska, and all 2017 ports of embarkation, including Port Canaveral, Vancouver, Miami, San Juan, San Diego, Galveston, Copenhagen, Dover, and Barcelona. No detail is too small?from dining room menus to detailed deck plans, daily activities to shore excursions and extensive port-of-call coverage?it’s all included. The in-depth information is accompanied by over 200 original photographs and more than 20 maps, charts, and worksheets, all in full color. The guide has everything first-time and veteran cruisers need to know about booking and enjoying a cruise with Mickey... and maybe a little extra, too!
PassPorter’s Disney Cruise Line and Its Ports of Call 14th Edition comes in three formats: paperback (＄24.95, ISBN: 978-1-58771-169-5), deluxe (＄49.95, ISBN: 978-1-58771-170-2), and e-book (＄19.95, ISBN: 978-1-58771-174-9).
